Anyway, I am feeling pretty lame right now because I haven't been able to get in touch with this girl. Here's the story morning glory:
On Wednesday night, during an excellent time at the Squirrel Cage, I sat down and talked with this super awesome girl. We talked for a while and had a good time. Finally when some more of her friends came over, I left and later on bought the drinks for their entire table (not sure where that one came from, but I was in a good mood). Anyway, after much prodding from my friends at the table, I went over and got her number, and she was really enthusiastic, it seemed, that we might hang out the next day. Well the next day came, and I called got no answer, left a message. Today the same thing. Now (and this may be the part in the story where you see that I am deluding myself) I am getting the sneaking suspicion that I took down her number incorrectly! Here is the quasi-evidence:
- When I call the number, there is nothing in the message indicating that it is her or even a girl's phone. Just the standard robotic voice, "You have reached 412..."
- We didn't do the standard, "Let me call you right now so that you have mine too," nor did we do any kind of confirmation that I was taking down the right number. I even had a premonition at the time that it would suck if I didn't get her number correcly.
- She seemed a little too enthusiastic to have given me a bogus number, but of course that is hard to read. (And come on, who even does that? Just say 'no' when someone asks for your number!)
Anyway, none of this would even be important if she hadn't been really nice/funny/cute etc, and we seemed to get along pretty well. I have briefly considered outlandish options like craigslist "missed connections" or scouring the Internets in hope of finding some record of her existence, but probably I will chalk this up as a lesson to Always make sure you got the correct number!
Okay, end lament session.
